Florim Wins 2022 Governor’s Environmental Stewardship Awards

Clarksville, TN, August 18, 2022-Florim USA was one of nine companies statewide to receive the 2022 Governor’s Environmental Stewardship Awards (GESA). The category awarded was for Sustainable Performance.

GESA’s are presented annually to recognize outstanding achievements by individuals, local governments, businesses, organizations, educational institutions, and agencies for successful environmental projects and conservation measures, according to the Tennessee Office of Policy and Sustainable Practices.

In part, Florim USA was recognized for ongoing sustainability efforts, such as utilizing internally generated production scrap, using various post-industrial wastes responsibly, and use of post-consumer scrap glass as a novel raw material. Some of the numbers that made an impact included nearly 15 million pounds of post-consumer glass that has been used to make Florim USA’s tiles since 2019 with 5.6 million pounds in 2021; the capture and reuse of more than 19 million gallons of water without any industrial wastewater discharge to the local sewer system in 2021; and in 2021, Florim USA recycled into its process more than 11 million pounds of internal scrap representing 99% of scrap produced.
